The Annexe, Science Centre Singapore
$18 (Adult) | $15 (Child, aged 3 to 12) | $52 (Family Package, 2 Adult + 2 Child)

The exhibition highlights how science has always had an important role in the circus and how circus relies upon a balance of artistry and science to meet new challenges and fulfil audience expectations. Just as science can satisfy our need to understand, the circus meets our need to be amazed, thrilled and even perplexed. Visitors will learn the science behind the circus by performing, examining and watching the art. They will also be invited to hold various circus acts up to scrutiny, investigating illusion versus reality, pseudo-science versus science.  Visitors will ''live the science'' through the magic of the circus.

Directed by Kate Golledge (Chicken Little, Treasure Island, Red Riding Hood), The Nightingale is a joyful burst of song that reminds us to appreciate and value the world around us.

Enchanted by the lilting birdsong of the plain-looking, brown Nightingale, the Emperor of China captures and keeps her in a gilded cage for his daily entertainment. But soon, along with her freedom, the beautiful voice of the Nightingale is lost and she is replaced by a singing mechanical bird. Will she survive her days in captivity? Will she ever fly freely again? What happens when the mechanical bird fails? Join the Emperor and the Nightingale as they discover true friendship. With catchy rhymes and clever dialogue, it is a ‘trill-ing’ show that will definitely captivate young audiences! For tickets, visit HERE.

Playeum's 'Making It Home' Exhibition
Now until 29 Apr 2017
Tues - Sun: 10am - 6pm (Closed on Mondays)
Playeum (Blk 47, Malan Road, Gillman Barracks, #01-23, Singapore 109444)
$22 per child (1-12) | Accompanying adult: Free | Additional accompanying adult: $10

Located at Gillman Barracks, Playeum is a museum without walls which hopes to inspire children through self-directed exploration and learning and in the process, establish a culture of meaningful and impactful play. The new exhibition is all about dreaming rooms, making spaces and creating places. Kids (and parents) will be able to experience the home as a place where many ordinary materials can have multiple purposes and support imagination, innovation and sustainability.

Interestingly, the spaces within the indoor playground - if you can call Playeum that - have been transformed into different ‘rooms’, each with a different purpose with different opportunities for the kids to explore, experiment and redefine. Whether it is imagining colours, materials and designs for floors walls and ceilings, to conjuring up art works with sand or recyclable materials, kids can stretch their creativity and imagination to the limit! Head HERE for my review.
